I’m sure I’ll regret this when they go into another nosedive, but….
Don’t look now, but the Cincinnati Reds have almost been fun to follow for the last week or so.
Sure, there was the “same old, same old” feeling when the bullpen again blew up last night against St. Louis, but sometimes nothing cleanses the sole like a good old Joey Votto game-winning home run against the Cardinals.

For those who found other things to do, that is five wins in six games since the calendar turned over, including two against the team with the best record in the NL East.
Not that it means they are going to go on a run and put a dent in that, you know, 18.5-game gap between them and the Cubs, but at least maybe it’s a hint they could be watchable for a while….?
